A little egg salad for Sunday

This all started out as an attempt to contrast the quotes by
Andrew Carnegie and Cervantes. A trip to and it quickly got out of hand.

The wise man puts all his eggs in one basket and watches the basket.
-Andrew Carnegie

It is part of a wise man to keep himself for tomorrow and not to
venture all his eggs in one basket.

This recipe is certainly silly. It says to separate the eggs, but it
doesn’t say how far to separate them.
-Gracie Allen

Lawyers, Preachers, and Tomtit’s eggs, there are more of them
hatch’d than come to perfection.
-Poor Richard’s Almanac

A hen is only an egg’s way of making another egg.
-Samuel Butler

Omelettes are not made without breaking eggs.

A true friend is someone who thinks you are a good egg even though
he knows you are slightly cracked.
-Bernard Meltzer

To eat an egg, you must break the shell.
-Jamaican proverb

Man is harder than rock and more fragile than an egg.
-Yugoslav proverb

When arguing with a stone, an egg is always wrong.
-African proverb
